There was a mild drama at the court after a suspected robber, Mr. Segun Mabaoreje, suddenly escaped from the court room in Lagos, fled and jumped into a canal to escape trial. The incident happened at the Magistrates court sitting in Ejigbo, Lagos, where the suspect, Mr. Mabaoreje was brought for arraignment.

However, he met his match as both the court officials and the security men pursued him. The security men dived into the canal, apprehended and brought him back to the court room where he was eventually arraigned. The prosecutor, Inspector G. Simon, prepared another charge and he was arraigned to attempting to escape for the offence.

The Presiding Magistrate, Mr. L.K.J. Layeni, did not grant him bail as his attempted escape happened in his presence. He ordered that the suspect be remanded in prison custody and adjourned till 6th August, 2018, when he will be brought to court for the offence he had committed before he attempted escape from the court.

The suspect was arrested by the police at Igando Division for burglary and attempt to steal before he was caught.

Mr. Mabaoreje was not the only suspect that had tried such in the past, another suspect tried to escape in the same court but he failed, was charged and remanded in prison. It was also gathered that a young suspect was brought to Ogba Magistrates court; he jumped from the court's three storey building and died on the spot in his attempt to escape.

It was gathered that after Mr Mabaoreje was re-arrested, he said was afraid to go to prison and that was why he tried to escape but failed.

He said he was told that the prison was a death trap and that he may not survive if he was taken there. However, his claim was debunked by prison officials who said that the prison was not all that terrible as it remained a correction centre with modern facilities.
